Your Opportunity

We're active members of the communities we serve. That's why at Stantec, formerly RNL Design, we always design with community in mind.

We put the engine in buildings engineering. Intelligent design. Innovative execution. These are the elements of buildings engineering that rev us up. With decades of experience under our belts, we’re achieving remarkable results with our work in building technologies, energy, and environmental performance. Our team of interdisciplinary engineers works collaboratively with clients to design buildings and processes that are on track for safety, performance, and sustainability.

Join a dynamic team that balances competing project interests with creativity and efficiency for a smooth ride every time. Together, we can accelerate towards a brighter future.

 Do you have a passion for sustainability, daylighting and human-centric design? Are you seeking an exciting job opportunity where you can influence architectural design within a collaborative multidisciplinary environment? Did you know that Denver has 300 days of sunshine annually?


Our Denver office is currently seeking a mid-level sustainability consultant and daylight modeler with a minimum of three years of experience to join our group. The candidate would be responsible for working on daylight simulations and other related sustainable design analysis. The preferred candidate will have strong analytical and modeling skills and will be a self-starter that enjoys working collaboratively alongside other creative minds.

Your Duties

  • Daylight analysis including modeling, evaluations and recommendations related to glare, contrast, light levels and controls
  • Implementation and understanding of industry daylight metrics including sDA, ASE, and glare
  • Implementation of ASHRAE and IECC code requirements relevant to daylight design and control
  • Understanding of energy efficiency strategies related to quality daylight design practices
  • Coordinate the green building certification process on projects across all studios (e.g. LEED, WELL, Fitwel, Envision). Knowledge of each rating system is less important than the ability to organize teams, documentation and track progress towards goals.
  • Prepare and review green building certification documents.
  • Life cycle cost analysis and cost-benefit analyses
  • Collaborate within a team setting as a team player to influence design and optimize project results
  • Present oral and written reports of findings and recommendations related to daylight and sustainability analysis
  • Coordinate with engineers and architectural design team 
  • Engaged in all phases of projects from conceptual planning through post occupancy 

Your Capabilities and Credentials

  • Green Building certifications in current standing. LEED AP with specialty is a minimum requirement.
  • Degree from an accredited university in Architecture, Engineering, or equivalent design-related experience 
  • 3+ years of post-graduation experience with daylight and/or energy modeling
  • Excellent communication skills (interpersonal and written) with your collaboration with team members in a multi-disciplined environment
  • Proficient and interested in the application of green building and health and wellness standards such as LEED, WELL
  • Familiarity with Revit, AutoCAD, and SketchUp
  • Proficient with LightStanza, AGI 32, Radiance or similar simulation software
  • Proficient with Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Word, Excel and Power Point
  • Familiarity with energy simulations.
